Early English Christmas Dinner

We had our big extended family feast today, full of English foods. Anthony does not relish them like the rest of us, but he is good with the wines and the coffee! I truly feel that English food has been unfairly maligned in its general reputation. We feasted on scones for breakfast, and had leg o' lamb and roasted potatoes for dinner. The dessert course featured mini shortbread tarts with lemon curd, jam thumbprint cookies, and fudge.

We were all merry and bright in our paper hats that came out of our Christmas Crackers!

It was all very nice but I ate 'Weigh too much' food.

Oh by the way, you missed out several items relative to English food in your description...........onions in vinegar, mint sauce, meat pies.

I also noticed Tom was not wearing his hat!

We had a lovely time indeed and then finished off by singing Christmas Carols accompanied by Grandad on the guitar! Thanks again!
Love, M
P.S. And we were back home safe and sound by 10 pm.

I had a wonderful time and really appreciated the portabella ? mushrooms made especially for this vegetarian. I thought
Anthony real noble to host us when he felt so miserable.
Love your family! Jill
